The Alabama Crimson Tide and Auburn Tigers are fierce rivals, playing in the intense Iron Bowl rivalry game every year.

However, even with the animosity between the fan bases, there can still be some great moments of sportsmanship.

As you can see below, Alabama QB Tua Tagovailoa’s dad, Galu, reached out to reporter Simone Eli to ask for the phone number of Patrick Nix, father of Auburn freshman QB Bo Nix:

That’s a classy gesture, and we’re sure whatever was said between the two dads was respectful and encouraging.

Stuff like that is what makes sports great, and we can’t wait to see how Tagovailoa and Nix fare on the field against one another for the first time this year.
